TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Rose O'Donnell is bringing her stand-up comedy routine to northern Michigan as the headliner in next month’s Traverse City Winter Comedy Festival.

Filmmaker Michael Moore organizes the event and on Friday announced the Feb. 13-16 festival lineup.

The 51-year-old O'Donnell began her career on the club circuit before starring in the television sitcom “Gimme a Break!” and the film “A League of Their Own.” She also hosted an Emmy-winning daytime talk show and was an outspoken co-host of “The View.”

She’s returned to the stage since suffering a near-fatal heart attack in 2012.

Other comedians scheduled to appear at the Traverse City festival include veteran Saturday Night Live cast member Tim Meadows, Michael Ian Black, Tig Notaro and Stephen Lynch.

Jeff Garlin of the sitcom “The Goldbergs” will also perform.
